Javascript Date Pickers

I’ve been looking for a good date picker for a project I’m working on, so I though I’d post the best results I’ve found so far.

  • UI jQuery Datepicker The standard datepicker available in the jQuery UI library. Pretty nice, though the visuals could use some work. The colors in the default control need some work.
  • http://www.filamentgroup.com/examples/datepicker/ Based on the original codebase for the ui.datepicker jQuery control, this is a very impressive date range picker. Not completely in a reusable form at this point, but good nonetheless.
  • Calendar This datepicker has a great visual appearance. It is build on top of the Mootools libary. This was actually my choice for a straight up datepicker until I realized that using jQuery and Mootools isn’t a walk in the park.
